KHA CON Committee Collecting Comments on State Health Plan Changes
Wednesday, July 25, 2018 9:36 AM
On July 13, the Cabinet for Health and Family Services (CHFS) filed changes
to the State Health Plan – the guiding methodology for formal review under
the Certificate of Need (CON) program. These changes were filed in two
regulations – ordinary and emergency. The E-reg deletes the Post Acute
Transitional Care pilot project (passage of SB 123) and an
Ordinary Regulation combines required changes from the passage of HB 444 as well as
other recommendations received during the pre-comment period. (Click the bill numbers above for full text of the regulations.) KHA's summary of the changes identifies if these
were KHA-supported or otherwise.
Written comments are due to the Cabinet by August 31. KHA's CON
Committee will meet via conference call on August 13 at 2:30 p.m. until 4:00 p.m. (ET). The Association will collect hospital comments and recommendations prior to the
August 13 CON Committee meeting.
If you have any comments, please contact Elizabeth Cobb
at KHA (email@example.com).
